Animation and interviews


The Council  worked with Mosaic Films to produce this short animation which conveys some of the key themes of the Council’s report ‘Children and clinical research: ethical issues’ from the perspective of Mia – a character who goes through some of the questions and issues that might be raised when a young person is invited to take part in clinical research. The script was developed following a workshop with 14 young people aged 10-18 who had previously been in contact with the Council, but were not ‘experts’ in clinical research.


In February 2015, the Council carried out interviews with members of the Liverpool Young Persons’ Advisory Group. Quotes from the interviews were featured in our magazine and you can listen to them by clicking on the links.
